Does it do it in all forward gears or just overdrive?

    Your car does have what they call lockup torque converter, in your case its locked in all the time and its not suppost to be. unfortunetly the only fix is replacement, and that means tranmission has to come out.

    short trips will be ok, if it dosent buck in a lower gear.

What would make a 2000 buick park avenue over heat and shut off


over heating is from ---low coolant level--blocked radiator cores--fins missing from radiator cores--thermostat not opening--coolant temperature sensor not operating the cooling fan-- driving to fast and not engaging over drive ---if the fan is mechanical and there is a viscous fan hub then the hub is faulty ( overheating at lights but cools down on moving)-- faulty radiator cap--- air in cooling system--run fault codes to check for problems with mixture and timing---low tyre pressures at speed ---over loading--pulling a heavy trailer ---hilly conditions

Perhaps some where in that list you will find an answer to your question

I have a 89 buick park avenue ultra. my


If the trans.oil is dark brown in color and smell's burnt your tranny is probably on it's last leg.If tou have bad pump pressure or low oil you will have to rev the eng to get it to build enough pressure to move.Your detent cable or kick down cable is for passing,when you step on the gas when passing someone this cable is pulled causing the trans. to go into a lower gear and when you let off the gas it should shift back into a higher gear.if it's out of adjustment it will kickdown to soon or to late.If your car has alot of miles it may be in need of a filter and fluid change,but usually when slipping occures its to late and you will need a replacement tranny.Hope this was helpfull.
